Employee profile : Kevin Jackson

Careers_BodyKevin Jackson been with Air Enterprises for over five years and envisions a long-term career with the company. He has risen through the ranks to become second-shift shipping lead, in charge of the shipping department during that shift. The department handles all of the company’s shipping needs, including ensuring that deliveries are scheduled and ready on time. After that experience, he moved into a Project Coordinator role in our Project Management Department.

We spoke with Jackson about what it’s like to work at Air Enterprises and how the dedication of the company’s employees helps ensure quality products.

Why did you want to work at Air Enterprises?

It’s a good company and provided a good opportunity. It has also been around a long time, for 48 years, and many of the employees have been here 20 and even 30-some years. I think that dedication says a lot about the company.

What do you like most about your job?

I really like the people at Air Enterprises. There isn’t anyone here I don’t get along with. Everyone has a good work ethic and is always ready to get the job done. There is no naysaying or complaining. Everybody does what they need to do to get the job done and create a quality product.

What sets Air Enterprises apart from other companies?

The way they treat their employees is definitely new to me, and something I hadn’t seen at other companies I worked for. At Air Enterprises, if you show hard work and diligence, they will recognize it. There is opportunity for advancement, and they offer paid time off when you need it.

They are also upfront, honest and open. They encourage us to ask questions, and if they don’t know the answer, they’ll get it for us. They keep us informed. We have monthly company meetings to go over the company’s finances, including losses and gains. We also have weekly meetings where we go over safety goals and daily meetings where we think of ways we can improve. Air Enterprises always asks for our ideas and solutions. We call it ‘bottom-up thinking.’

What is the workplace atmosphere like at Air Enterprises?

Everybody is dedicated to working together to get the job done. Nobody holds up the process. If I tell my employees to get something done, they do it immediately. If we need help from another department, people often drop what they’re doing to help, even the guys who have been here for 20 or 30 years.

Communication is big on the shop floor. If there’s a problem within a department, we work together to fix it. If the problem involves multiple departments, we get together to discuss it and set up a game plan.

How do you think the employee dedication you described translates to a better quality product?

Air Enterprises employees are proud of the way the company treats us. Even though the company went through hard times during the recession, it kept as many employees as possible. And when Bill Weber took over, he brought a lot of employees back.

We’re also proud of our product. It’s No. 1. We know we produce a quality product, and we want to ensure that we continue to produce a quality product. When you have a group working the best it is able, the product will definitely be the best it can be.

When you’re not working at Air Enterprises, where can we find you?

Usually at home with my fiancée. We enjoy hiking and traveling, and we went to Florida earlier this year to see family.
